If waiting seven years wasn’t long enough, fans will now have to wait even longer to get their hands on The Last Guardian. Shuhei Yoshia, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, has announced via the official PlayStation blog that The Last Guardian has suffered yet another delay. Now infamous for such delays, the game will launch on December 6 in North America, December 7 in Europe, and December 9 across the UK and Ireland

Throughout the blog post, Shuhei explains the difficulty of the decision and also shares the reason for the game’s delay. 

“A delay is a difficult decision, particularly with this game, but we have encountered more bugs than anticipated while in the final stages of development. To ensure that The Last Guardian delivers on the experience that the game’s creators have envisioned, we need to take the extra time to work on those issues.”

He also adds that:

“Fumito Ueda (gen Design) and Japan Studio have a wonderful vision for The Last Guardian’s touching, emotional journey of friendship and trust, and we want to deliver the most polished experience possible for our fans who have supported us for so long”.

While the game was originally slated for an October launch, Shuhei has ensured fans that the development will continue to push itself to the fullest and we can look forward to the reveal of new content closer to the launch date.
